For every online shopper, Black Friday is the holiday to look forward to every year. Like many of my fellow beauty-lovers, I watch my favorite skincare and makeup launches of the year like a hawk from the day after Halloween. As newsletter emails and (suspiciously well) targeted Instagram ads start touting deals, I'll mark them down in my planner to make sure I can keep track of them all.

For most of us, skincare and natural beauty have been at the forefront of our minds. We're more invested in self-care and choosing the best products we possibly can to nourish our bodies than ever before.

In a year in which we've been feeling an extreme loss of control, purchasing a serum with the best acne-fighting ingredients or hitting "place order" on the eyeshadow palette you've been watching influencers toy with for months can be a form of self-love that infuses our days with the energy that perhaps indulging in a long stroll through the beauty aisle of Target used to.

For that reason and for the sheer love of all things beauty, below are the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals our skin (and wallets) can't wait to have land at our doorstep.

Lord Jones to channel our inner royal and heal all the holiday stress

@thelordjones

With the code CALM2020, Lord Jones customers will receive 25% off the purchase of one product, 30% off the purchase of two products and 35% off the purchase of three or more products (excluding gumdrops, gift boxes, and gift cards).

Kate Somerville to cure all (and every) skincare woe

@katesomervilleskincare

From the makers of the Liquid Exfolikate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment I count on whenever I'm experiencing a breakout, Kate Somerville is offering 25% off from November 26 to 29 using code BFCM25, then 30% off on November 30 with code BFCM30.

For all five days, get a full-size Retinol Vitamin C Moisturizer with every $150 purchase — trust me, you'll be spending more than that.

NEST New York for the ideal partner to any bubble bath

@nestfragrances

NEST makes the candles that please your eyes just as much, if not more, than they do your nose — I plan on using plenty of their Birchwood Pine and Holiday Classic candles to decorate our home for the holidays. NEST New York is offering 25% off from November 26 to 30 using code FRIDAY along with a complimentary Amalfi Lemon & Mint Classic Candle with any purchase over $200.

On November 30, the deal gets sweeter with a complimentary Midnight Fleur rollerball with any purchase — it's the perfect time to fill up on a year's worth of candles.

OGX to restock on all your clean haircare must-haves

@ogx_beauty

I already know I'll be restocking on my favorite, holy grail hairspray — OGX's Argan Oil Hair Spray is the only thing I count on for holding my style without a hard, crunchy finish.

The cult-favorite brand had natural hair product junkies swooning from the moment they launched. The already budget-friendly brand is offering $2 off any product at $7.99, $8.99, or $9.99 on Ulta's website from November 22 to 28.

Alder New York to support the best friend-founded, vegan, genderless beauty brand of our dreams

Alder New York

Alder New York's clean products are as sleek and cool as they are effective — their gua sha tool is a staple in my weekly masking routine.

Everything from the vegan, cruelty-free, locally-manufactured, and ethically-made brand will be 25% off from November 25 to December 1.

Bathing Culture for a non-toxic brand that'll transform any shower in to a spa

Bathing Culture

I've never wanted smell-o-vision more than I have when writing about Bathing Culture — inhaling the strong cathedral grove scent in their Mind and Body Wash is a transportive experience anyone who showers should have.

From November 20 to 30, everything but their bundles are 20% off on the Bathing Culture site.

HELLEN for chakra-aligning bath brews

HELLEN

If you've ever wanted to try Reiki and just haven't gotten around to it, founder Hellen Yuan personally infuses her bath brews with Reiki energy to treat the heart, throat, root, and sacral chakras.

From 12 a.m. EST on November 27 to 12 a.m. December 1, get 20% off with code 2020SPIRIT.

LINNÉ Botanicals if you have as much of a green thumb as you do love for skincare

LINNÉ Botanicals

Founder Jenna Levine is California-certified in plant botany and herbal medicine, making her the ideal person to make clean, natural skincare.

The small-batch products will all be 20% off on the LINNÉ Botanicals site, and every purchase over $150 comes with a free Skin Tea.

Tower28 for the cult-favorite, WOC-founded clean beauty brand approved by the National Eczema Association

Tower28

One of my favorite beauty brands of all time, Tower28 is a brand every beauty lover should be supporting for its roots, ingredients, and thoughtfulness in every step of production. Their beauty balms are a holy grail product I'll be using for many years to come.

If you've tried and already fallen for the brand, refill on your favorites from 12 a.m. PST on November 27 to 11:59 p.m. PST on November 30 using code THANKFUL20 to get 20% off the Tower28 site with free shipping.

Vitruvi for a sibling-founded brand every holistic beauty lover should know

Vitruvi

Every holistic beauty lover has heard of the famously elegant, chic, Goop-loved stone diffusers. When my skin is feeling particularly sensitive, I'll put some lavender essential oil in my diffuser before bed and wake up with a renewed glow. If you're acne-prone, do the same with tea tree oil and you won't regret it.

From November 23 at 6 p.m. PST to 12 a.m. PST on November 30, get 30% off Vitruvi's entire site, excluding their new Move and Stay diffusers.

Botanics for the cult-favorite skincare line clean beauty lovers have been raving about

@botanicsusa

Chances are if you haven't already tried this brand, you've definitely walked past its chic packaging and luxurious oils on the shelves of Walgreens before.

This year, from November 22 to 28, buy two products and get one free. You'll also get an extra 10% off using code GIFT10 on Walgreens website, as well as a free gift with purchase when you spend over $25 in-store.

The Beauty Spy for the international beauty lover who wants every Asian beauty secret

@thebeautyspyofficial

One of my favorites on this list, The Beauty Spy is the safe way to source all your international beauty needs without the worry of getting un-certified, fake products at unreliable third-party retailers. They sell the Pore Tight Peeling Mousse that I swear by to get rid of blackheads — and that you've probably seen all over TikTok.

    Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

    Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

    1893

    I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

    I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

    The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

    To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

    kozepsuli.hu

    Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

    Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

    It is truly the worst place to be

    Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

    Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.

    Life Before Emancipation

    Contraband Camps in Harpers Ferry

    8473

    When the Civil War first broke out, the United States Army sought to preserve the Union, and did not have intentions on interfering with the institution of slavery in the rebellious states. In fact, in his first inaugural address, Abraham Lincoln promised not to interfere with slavery in the places where it already existed. Of course, at the time of this address, Virginia, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Tennessee had yet to secede, so he needed to keep a moderate stance. When the U.S. Army moved into states in rebellion, generals ensured civilians that they would not interfere with slavery, and would even hep quell potential uprisings. On May 22, 1861, this attitude towards slavery began to change. Prior to then, slaves who escaped into Union lines could be returned to their masters. In some cases, troops with more abolitionist leanings would aid the runaways, but it was not yet the norm. However on May 22, three runaway slaves approached Fort Monroe along the James River seeking refuge. The slaves stated that they were about to be sent South to work on the Confederate coastal defenses in the Carolinas. Instead of returning the slaves to their masters, the commander of the fort, Benjamin Butler, claimed the slaves were contraband of war and put them to work in support of the United States. He wrote Winfield Scott, general-in-chief of all federal armies, "Shall [the enemy] be allowed the use of this property against the United States and we not be allowed its use in aid of the United States?" Following Butler's actions, 900 more slaves would gather in Fort Monroe. Congress would back Butler's stance with the First Confiscation Act in August of 1861.

    Juneteenth: The Overlooked 'Independence Day'

    If we can't celebrate different types of people and rejoice with them in their season of glee and jubilation, then what kind of "land of the free" is this, anyway?

    4578
    News Desk

    I want to begin this article by saying that I was raised to be about as patriotic as it gets. I was born and bred in the "Bible belt" where we learned to say "thank you for your service" before we could even comprehend what those words truly meant. My father is a highly respected and high-ranking Houston firefighter, and he is following in the footsteps of three prior generations of Houston firefighters within our direct lineage. My maternal grandfather served in the U.S. Army, and I have multiple family members and personal friends who have served and/or are currently serving in our nation's military. And lastly (probably most important), my husband is currently serving as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, as well. So I think it goes without saying that I have the utmost admiration and respect for public servants and first responders of all kinds.

    I love our nation's military and I love this nation. But I am not a blind patriot with my head stuck in the sand. I will always support our troops, but I will very rarely support the ugly wars that we fight (both literal and figurative) across national borders and/or within our own walls.

    I will be the first person to admit that this great nation in which we love so dearly is filled with hatred, ugly politics, extreme corruption and institutionalized oppression and racism (just to name a few). I love America and I am grateful that I live here, but I am not blind to America's obvious flaws.

    War and political nonsense aside though, I think it is worth noting that America is already great, but let's not be ignorant, America is certainly not the "land of the free" for every race, religion and sexual orientation out there. So let's stop treating it as such. The sooner we can recognize our legitimate internal problems, the better off we will be. Our gullibility is getting us nowhere.
